This is a letter to our friends –
Tree rings & space
With news about the Webb Telescope (see NASA news) about to look at the origins of the universe, it seems appropriate to mention the Creator of the universe.
For those who replace a Creator with random chance over billions of years – I respond, “Please explain intelligent design, How can “random” produce a functioning eyeball?
The Bible has proven to be a reliable history book. The Bible appears to place creation at around 6,000 years ago. The first human, Adam, was placed in a garden in the area we know as Iraq. Suppose Adam had taken a chain-saw and cut down a tree in the garden. The stump would have had tree rings. Tree rings tell the history of the just-created tree. Adam was full grown. God created the universe with the image of age!
It requires a lot more “faith” to credit God’s handywork to random chance than it takes to acknowledge the God of the Bible!
